General Notices

Welcome to Year 3!

 

 

Homework

The children will receive 1 or two pieces of homework each week. These will normally be a spelling practice and a math’s task. I understand that we all live busy lives and it may not be possible for the children to do both so I just ask that at least one of the tasks are done and handed in on a Friday. If the children have not completed one piece they will complete it at playtime on a Friday.

We will have a very informal spelling test on a Friday and these will be words we have been looking at in our spelling lessons.

 

Reads

This will be the same as in Year 2, the children are expected to read 3 times a week. This can include reads at breakfast club, homework club early bird reading (Wednesday) and at home.

I do not give the children a specific time to change their books in Year 3. It is up to them to tell me they need to change their books. They can change a book at any point, if your child is not enjoying their book they can change it before finishing. We want them to be enjoy reading. Feel free to read home books, comics, posters, annuals with them: it doesn’t always have to be their school book.

 

PE

This half term we will be having PE on a Monday and Wednesday. Please be aware that this will most likely change next half term though. It's best if children have their kit in school from Monday to Friday. We sometimes have spontaneous PE sessions throughout the week.

 

Topics

This term the children will be learning about volcanoes in our topic lessons and they will be learning about rocks and soils in science. I will send an optional homework sheet home with activities the children may complete if they wish.

 

Tuck shop

The children have come home with a tuck shop price list. If you are happy for them to have tuck shop then please send them into school with a sealed purse, wallet or holder. This helps the children to keep their money secure and not lost. 

 

If you have any questions, feel free to come and see me or give school a ring. There is also an e-mail tab at the bottom of this page for you to get in touch.

 

Thank you,

Miss Nicholson
